Those yellar acorns are as expensive as gold this year. Might as well farm diamonds and hope to get lucky.

Your math is what I've based my entire early season on. Hope you're right!

If 70-80% of your acorns are gone, you need to hunt the 20-30% that are left. The deer will hammer those. Better than a pile of corn.

i hear u...only thing cone is good for is to get pics on trail cams....the forester said while he was walking around...he found a odd acern tree for our area that produce acerns way before the other trees acerns are full...i forgot the name of the tree...anyways he saw 12 deer feeding under that tree the other day...they were enhaling them acerns that fell on the ground from the winds....too bad they will be gone by bow season....weird thing is, this tree he found is oonly about 50 yards from a street, and the deer were feeding at 1 pm.........sounds like i need to put my cam out over there this weekend if they aint ate em all by now

I was at LSU for a meeting at the chimistry building with a customer. There were numerous sawtooth oks in front of the building that had the ground covered with acorns.

Yep the fish got hammered in the Atchafalay Spillway swamp also.

I even saw dead fish everywhere in the Amite River when I crossed it today.

Dang hurricanes stir up the shallow water where elaves have been covered by silt and cut off the oxgen to decomposition. Once it is stirred up, the material (leaf muck and ooze) restarts decomposition as it sucks up the oxgen from the wter to decompose.

Thus raising the BOD (biological Oxygen Demand and suffcoating fish due to lack of oxygen in the water.

Less acorns means deer move more for food instead of laying up all day and feasting on acorns at night......... I always hated years with heavy acorn crops...except whiteoak acorns......they compete all day for those!
